Intro stat is a tough class to teach. Most students don’t want to be there, are mathphobic, and/or are bad at math. I always tried to mix up the class with fun examples that students could relate to (ie about beer and frat parties) to keep it interesting. Here are a few of my favorite graphics from the visualization section of the class.
I should note that none of these are my original graphics. I have received them in emails from several people, so I have no idea how to correctly attribute them.
